Leftists, which have successfully shaped the insane narrative that we are all forced to deal with now, wish to expose you. They wish to insult you. They wish to shut you down.
To combat the leftists on their own terms is to immediately lose the battle.
In any fight, one must assess their opponent and without pride or arrogance determine the best method with which to fight said opponent. If one is faced with an obstacle that is larger than them, more skilled in that particular form of combat than them, then it is paramount to make the decision to utilize what is called a ‘force equalizer.’ Think of an ashtray to the temple against a 6’4″ MMA fighter with a bad attitude. Attempting to fight this man on his own terms is a path to pain and perhaps being admitted to a local hospital. You’ll need more than a good punch, you’ll need a strategy, in real time, to deal with the situation
In terms of our current Modernity, peer pressure and desires to be liked must be dismissed in order to facilitate that force equalizer. We live in a fake, hivemind culture. This culture rails against ‘shame’ when it comes to adhering to normality, morality, and overall societal good. It has flipped the notion of shame as such that to stand outside of this hivemind of egalitarian diversity is an act in and of itself that must be shamed. Do you believe that ‘transgender’ people suffer from very real mental issues?
Prepare to be assaulted by shame from the hivemind.
The amount of hivemind fallacies that, to them, require shaming, are endless. To fight them all head on using their own tactics is certain to find you losing the battle. Addressing these issues from the standpoint of this modern hivemind will surely lead quickly to defeat. The only defense is a mind that is prepared and strong enough to dismiss the notion of being liked, or giving two shits or a damn about what others think of us.
Once the sane person understands that Modernity and its narrative is insane, this process becomes much easier. Though this site enjoys targeting leftists, the fact is that many on the right are just as insane as the devoted leftists. Many on the modern right are their own worst enemy, and rightly so, as they have succumbed to peer pressure and status, or turning real issues like forced diversity into strawmen, and, in the case of many right leaning politicians, mere votes. Power often corrupts when placed in the wrong hands, and most of the rightwing, Republican establishment verifies this for us on a nearly day to day basis. Rhetoric from these politicians and pundits most often results in pathetic compromise because these people want to be liked, and they want votes or hits on their op-eds, the end result being the last thing on their minds. They are not, and it seems may not ever be, ready for the real battle that has presented itself in the demise of Western Culture.
Unlike Stark, they are not tired of the ‘liberal agenda’ but embrace it as a path to being liked, being voted back into office, or enjoying the dopamine rush of finding their own compromising and cowardly op-eds and appearances on talking head news shows garnering attention. So few of them have a real heart for the mission at hand, which includes their own demise if necessary to further a useful and bold agenda for Western Civilization on the whole. Peer pressure and materialism have utterly blinded them to their own purposes.
At the end of the day, how much do the thoughts of our peers affect our daily lives, or our own purposes? Well, first, we must define our own purpose beyond solipsistic notions of being accepted into the hivemind. Without that purpose, we are lost and being disliked or castigated has a profound effect on the mind. Once we have found our purpose, then we are able to determine our own force equalizers, and having done so, we can move forward with determination and a heart for our mission, whatever that mission is, no matter the pushback. We can even learn to enjoy pushback and insults, as we begin to understand that friction is one of the driving forces of our reality. Without friction, we could not even stand up. If we are receiving nothing but attaboys and praise for our thoughts, the likelihood of those thoughts having any impact on the world around us is minimal at best, at worst (and more likely) inert and pointless.
Modernity is insane, and has more in common with high school thinking than reality. Popularity in high school was most often due to luck, not guts, and so our Modernity is defined. The insanity that we endure every day is weak and gutless; it has little to no concern about the longterm health of our society but, instead, centers around our own solipsistic notions of caring what others think, and desiring to be liked.
When we do not care what others think, we are ready. But so few of us in this insane Modernity are ready.
We need more Stark-like chutzpah, to say the very least.
